A buddhist monk sits amid pro-thaksin supporters while a women passes by with a photo of ousted prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra around her neck on 13 december 2008, Bangkok Thailand.
Tens of thousands of Thai exiled prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra supporters wearing red shirts gathered at Bangkok's National stadium in support of exiled prime minister who was to address the gathered supporters by phone amid raising political tensions in Thailand. Instead a pre-recorded speech was displayed on monster screens leaving most of its supporters disappointed. The event was organized by the United Front Against Dictatorship (UDD) with a live talk show "Truth Today"
Earlier this month, the Constitutional Court found Mr Somchai's governing People Power Party (PPP) guilty of fraud during the last election a year ago, and banned it and two other parties in the governing coalition.
Mr Somchai and several other PPP leaders were also barred from politics for five years.
However, lawmakers from the three parties who escaped the politics ban quickly formed a new party - Puea Thai (For Thailand) - or joined other parties.
On Sunday, Mr Somchai's brother-in-law, exiled former PM Thaksin Shinawatra, accused the army of using the courts to undermine the government and warned them not to interfere in politics.
The country was stricken by months of political deadlock as anti-government protesters from the People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD) mounted a campaign to topple the PPP.
The PAD accused the PPP of being a proxy for Mr Thaksin, who was ousted in a coup in 2006.
The protest culminated in a week-long occupation of Bangkok's main international airport which left 300,000 foreign tourists stranded.
The PAD called off its action following the Constitutional Court ruling
